Heartbeat (Mixed Bag Entertainment/eOne)

FOR FANS OF: FLAME, Derek Minor, Tedashii
Rating: 4 Stars
With a burden for bearing life-changing spiritual truths through his rhyming prowess over thick jams, the gospel hip-hop forerunner enrolls a list of Grammy-winning producers to distribute a LP that is musically both experimental and highly accessible, while remaining spiritually on point. Gritty, harder rap pairs with smooth R&B ditties, perfected by a tally of heavy-hitting contributors (Lecrae, Chris August, James Fortune). Da’ T.R.U.T.H. is the entire package in spiritually sensitive hip-hop.
